Monterey Christmas Tree Farms

Monterey Christmas Tree Farms and Lots

Cut or pre cut!

The Monterey County is home to many wonderful Christmas tree farms where you can choose and cut your own Christmas tree. If you’re just not that adventuress, you can purchase a pre cut tree from any number of reputable Christmas tree lots. No matter what you choose, you can find many options just a short drive away from Monterey, Seaside and Carmel.

A word of caution – the drought has greatly impacted some of the Christmas tree farms, so be sure to call them before you go and ask about tree health and selection.

Some Christmas tree farms and lots offer extras such as bouncy houses, hot cider, hay rides and more. Visit the Christmas tree farm links below to see which one will best meet your specific needs.

Monterey’s Summer Advisories:

Traffic Conditions. Rush hour traffic can be extremely challenging – especially on Highway 1 between Seaside and Monterey. Also, 68 between Highway 1 and 101 can be extremely slow. It’s a good idea to plan ahead and arrive early and leave late. Go to to learn about road conditions.

Yes, it’s still water, water, water! California is undergoing an extreme drought. If you are planning a lake vacation be sure to check about water levels. That rafting trip, fishing, or skiing can be impacted.

EXTREME fire danger. The drought has created a very dangerous combination of dry vegetation and no moisture in the air to help contain any fire. Please use extreme caution during your trip.

Carmel Valley and Big Sur have major wildfires. Authorities expect them to burn through the end of August! Google for the latest news.
